    "A good discovery"

    This is the first book I have listened to by this author, but I hope it won't be the last. There was good characterisation and exciting twists and turns, and although the ending was obvious from a long way back, the journey was extremely enjoyable. The narrator was perfect for the book, making all the characters very individual. I listened to it all in one go - I just couldn't bear to stop in case I missed something! An excellent listen that I highly recommend.

    "Gripping"

    A fast moving plot, a likeable hero, lots of twists to keep your mind alert. I did suss out one twist and was duly pleased with myself for so doing. I really enjoyed this novel in every way. well narrated too

    "Very enjoyable"

    I'm very pleased that I purchased this one, had hours of enjoyment listening to it on holiday.
    It's an exciting story, just the way I like my action/adventure books.
    The lead character, Vail, is so compelling that I have to have more of this.
    Looked for the next one to download, but this one is it, for now at least.
    Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Pretty Decent Debut"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Perhaps a little deeper analysis of the motivation of the villiain


    Would you recommend The Bricklayer to your friends? Why or why not?

    Have done so already. Has the makings of a good series


    Did Nick Landrum do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

    Yes ... it was easy to follow the story during the dialogues and none of his voices were clichéd


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No .... I fall asleep during every film I watch!

    Any additional comments?

    Predictable...same feeling as if watching a 'made for TV movie'. A suitable summer beach read.

    Easy to suspend disbelief for this thoroughly enjoyable story. Familiar ingredients are combined to pleasing effect. Hard to switch off.

    Wanted to give up half way through and now wish I had. Come back Reacher, all is forgiven.

    "A good listen..."

    Easy listening, characters established early on, easy to follow, good middle story and a wee twist to finish. All in all a nice bit of escapism.

    "Great listen"

    Enjoyed it - and very well narrated. Well thought out plot with good twists and turns. It does not depict the FBI very favourably, but a good story line.
